Really good quality, fits snugly and is so warm. Wonderful for winter, love the pockets and shaping to the back. Also like how the buttons are attached with tape. Looks safer than just sewn on but the proof of that will be in the wearing as I have not had this before. One thing is sure it is already my favourite wear for going out in this weather together with my derry boots.

Delivery time excellent too. Thanks

I thought I would treat myself for my birthday and bought this coat as the weather had been getting colder. I rarely buy clothing online unless I am confident it will fit. I was thrilled when my parcel arrived on the day of my birthday. The coat fit perfectly (I ordered a small as I am a size 10). It is not like a usual winter coat that makes you look bigger than you are. It is really warm, waterproof and boasts a really nice furry hood. A good quality coat for a fair price. I am very pleased with my purchase!

I have just purchased this parka and love it. It is a good shape with the elasticated section and the back to give it a more feminine shape. It has a detachable fake fur section on the hood which is also wired to ensure it maintains its shape to protect your face. Lots of pockets (I love pockets) and thumb holes in the cuffs!

It is warm and the perfect length for me, mid thigh. I am now slightly less unhappy stepping out into the cold!

This is a very warm coat, with a very snug fit. So snug that I nearly returned it, thinking that I'd never get a jumper on under it, then I realised that a jumper wouldn't be necessary, it's that warm. As it is, I have a similar TU (Sains) coat in a 14, and this is an identical fit, so I can get away with just a cardi or a thin sweater and will be warm enough.

One thing that I may have missed on the previous reviews, is that the furry part specifically of the hood is extendable (I mean in addition to a hood being extendable anyway) - you can have it as shown in the picture, or you can lift it fully-extended over your head, and it covers you about 3 inches in front of your face, or if you fold it back once from this position, then it's more like a traditional hood that sits at the side of your face, so it can be adjusted according to weather.

The only complaint that I have, is that to enable this, the hood is encircled (not visible) by the old-fashioned pipe cleaners that I used to use at school in arts and crafts in the 70's. These make the hood rigid and allow it to do its job properly, but it will take a bit of getting used to. Additionally, when the hood is extended, you have to turn your body to see around you, as it's that far extended, and you have to push it back firmly to take it off. Best of all with this, though, is that the hood is so snug, close-fitting and luxuriously furry, that I won't need to wear a beanie underneath. And, it sheds - not horrendously, but it sheds visibly on itself, on tights and on black clothes if you hang this on your chair at work - be warned! Maybe that other reviewer didn't receive a used coat that a dog had slept on!

Super fast delivery from Amazon - What can I say but I love this coat, after searching everywhere for a black parka I can honestly say this is the best and I am so glad I brought it - Luv the fact that the fur trim can be moved on the hood (small metal thread through edge which keeps it in place) fur can also be zipped off and removed also the buttons are on a strip of material so no-more cotton breaking and loosing the buttons, pockets are good ample size. I am a size 12 and ordered this in Medium, it fits perfectly, would not be able to wear super thick jumpers or cardigans but you can wear thin cardigans, but thats all you need cause this coat is super warm - Due to all this bad weather we have had lately (Snow/Wind/Rain) I tried it out by just wearing a vest top underneath it and walked to the shops (20 min walk), and can say I was snug as a bug in a rug the only thing that was cold on me was my fingers as I had forgot me gloves.

Really impressed with this coat even though I had my doubts when I first got it. It doesn't seem very thick or padded as one would imagine for a winter coat and the large size seems huge however..... this coat is super warm! even with just a thin sweater on I was cozy as could be in this. The large size actually worked out well- I chose the large size based on the hip size of the coat which would fit me (I'm a pear shape- so it has to fit my hips), so it would be comfy but not restrictive or tight, also at first I thought the sleeves was too big but its good not to have them too tight including the cuff so you can wear gloves with comfort too.
The hood on the coat is brilliant with the wire frame which helps to hold it in place, the hood is also detachable too!
Overall I love this coat and would definitely recommend for purchase. If your a pear shape like me buy a size based on your hips for the best fit.

This coat comes up larger than usual in size. It is also very thin and does not provide the required warmth for the freezing winter months. I was expecting much more padding especially regarding the price. Very disapointed. Sent it back.

Well made attractive coat . However it was disappointing that it did not fit. I am size 16 so after reading several customer reviews, I decided to order the largest size, X/L. This turned out to be equivalent of size 14.

I bought this for winter walks with the dog and it is the warmest coat I have ever worn. It even worked well on a trip to Iceland sat on a boat whale watching while a freezing wind blew! You don't need lots of layers with this coat but it is cut on the small side. I'm a 12 but ended up buying a large.
